In recent years, SalzburgerLand has developed into a real triathlon stronghold. Here, there are not only some of the best competitions for far and wide, but also the perfect training conditions in all three sports. Because, where else can you find the ideal conditions for running, cycling and swimming in a relatively compact space?
No wonder, then, that not only are the best events here through the lakes, valleys and mountains, but also some of the sport’s top athletes call SalzburgerLand their home. But, of course the sport would not be much without the right infrastructure. You will find here not only perfect training facilities, but also hotels and guest-houses which specialise in looking after triathlon guests. There are restaurants with menus specifically tailored to the needs of triathletes and you will also enjoy all the facilities that are required for training and competition success.
In this sense: grab your road bike, running shoes and swimming gear, and experience in SalzburgerLand a triathlon season which is second to none.
